Mumbai: Once bitter rival, Kareena Kapoor seems to have developed a soft corner for Priyanka Chopra. The two Bollywood queens who once shared a not-so-cordial relationship are getting friendlier by the day. On a visit to the city to promote ‘Heroine’, when a scribe asked Kareena about Priyanka, who has been gaining wide scale acclaim for her superb acting in cousin’s Ranbir starrer ‘Barfi’, Bebo couldn’t stop raving about PeeCee.
Interestingly, just a while back when Kareena was asked about her upcoming film ‘Heroine’ being similar to ‘Fashion’, which shares the same director — Madhur Bhadarkar, she had told, “Heroine is far better than ‘Fashion’”. The actress who never minced words when speaking about her contemporaries had earlier said that she didn’t care about Priyanka bagging a National Award for ‘Fashion’. However, now Bebo’s tone has suddenly changed to showering praises on ‘Priyanka’ for her superb performance in the movie.
And if the above remarks were just enough to make one dwell on the chameleon-like nature of Bollywood beauties, Kareena quipped to clear the air in one of her interviews, “A lot is projected wrongly. We are very cordial with each other. I absolutely loved Priyanka in ‘Fashion’.”
Interestingly, the attempt to mend fences is not one-sided. Priyanka, who had once clarified about her bond with Kareena as that of a strained one, congratulated the latter publicly on her upcoming wedding with actor Saif Ali Khan. “They make a beautiful couple and I wish them all the best. It’s a new beginning for any girl and I can’t wait to see her as a bride,” Priyanka said at an event recently.
